Suspect wounded in Pico Rivera by sheriff's deputies
A man called police just before 10 p.m. Wednesday saying he was drunk and had a gun at the Knights Inn on Rosemead Boulevard, Deputy Peter Gomez said Thursday in a statement.
Deputies who responded noticed a man with a handgun in his waistband standing in front of the hotel.
As a number of patrol units arrived, the suspect, later identified as a Whittier resident, raised the handgun toward the deputies and opened fire, Gomez said.
Deputies returned fire, striking the man numerous times. He was reported to be in stable condition at a hospital.
No deputies were injured, and a handgun was recovered near the suspect, officials said.
